When we moved into our house almost 3 years ago this is what the dining room looked like:


OMG…ugliest room ever. What were they thinking with that wallpaper?!Then with a little paint, paintable wallpaper for the tray ceiling, newly sewed curtains and our existing furniture/accessories, we turned it into this for under $150:











This was a couple of years ago, and we have since added a wine rack shelf and some accessories.
We are still wanting to add molding frames to the white lower part, but that will come after we get
our other house projects done.
I am so happy to have a fresh, updated dining room (even though we rarely use it).
